The city’s Community Development Department will accept applications between this coming Monday and Oct. 28, with three permits available for cultivation, three for distribution, one for a dispensary and one for manufacturing.
There are currently 15 active commercial cannabis permits in Salinas that have generated more than $1 million in tax revenue for the city since it last accepted applications in 2017.
At the end of the application period, Salinas has a Cannabis Selection Committee that will review and rate the applicants and make a recommendation to the Community Development Department, according to the city.
